Look at me taking over famous quotes and making them my own!
What a rebel.
It seems to be a Thing that I like doing. I think most of my outfit posts now are named after either song lyrics or film quotes.
Apparently I lack originality.
Who doesn’t love an Autumn floral?
Miranda Priestly might be SO over flowers for Spring, but I bet even SHE loves Autumn florals!
(Say Autumn florals again.)
(See what I did there?)(I stole another film quote).
This fab little number is new to my wardrobe and I’m already a bit in love with it. It’s House of Fraser and an absolute bargain at £26.
It’s soft and silky and sooo comfortable to wear, as well as being super pretty.
Billowy, three-quarter length sleeves and the faux-wrap-front top give it a slight boho-y 70’s feel, which I’m loving because TRENDS.
And it has a discreet elasticated waistband, which is my favourite thing at the moment. (Y’know the infamous Fresher 15? Yeah well I’ve got the Food Blogger 15…)
Initially I was going to style this with black tights and stilettos and a blazer thrown oh-so-casually over my shoulders. (Cos Fashion Blogger clichés are my favourite kind of clichés.)
And I did actually REALLY like that outfit…
But it’s not really me. YaknowwhatImean?
It felt too glamorous and grown up and strange. My style is much more chilled and a LOT less glam.
So I stripped off (ohh-er) and went back to the drawing board.
And came up with this!
(Which basically just means I reverted to type and threw on all black accessories…)
Don’t you just love fashion contrasts?
There’s something so yummy about mixing a pretty, delicate dress with edgy leather and gold details.
It makes me feel stylish and strong, and it’s a styling uniform I always seem to fall back on.
Kind of like an upgraded version of my Style Concepts!
Do you have a particular styling trick like this that helps you put outfits together? :)
I’d love to hear ’em!
Maybe it will give me the kick I need to branch out of my comfort zone a bit…
*I was gifted the dress.
As always, if I didn’t love it, I wouldn’t blog it! :)
